Public safety operations depend on a stable, safe, and resilient communications. Sophisticated criminal actors and nation-states exploit cyber vulnerabilities to threaten the delivery of essential services. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partners with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial public safety organizations to identify cyber risks and preempt vulnerabilities through research and development (R&D). Cybersecurity is a shared mission across all levels of government, the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and the public. Public safety leaders recognize the need to modernize and customize cybersecurity solutions to meet emerging threats. Join cybersecurity subject-matter experts in a panel to explore CISA's collaboration with stakeholders and support for pilot projects to test novel cybersecurity solutions. Learn about the unique nature of public safety cybersecurity. Various topics will be discussed, including identity, credential and access management (ICAM), computer-aided dispatch (CAD)-to-CAD interoperability, and cybersecurity innovations for the nation's 911 systems.
